Yesterday, I had a look at the Subway Sketchbook - in short a graffiti doodle notebook. I was disappointed. A much more exciting alternative is the Walls Notebook from Quirk Books which is much more inspirational doodlebook.

It is available in the UK at Amazon, Urban Outfitters and a range of crafty/gift stores. Just look at examples of lovely work using the notebook.
It just makes me want to get stuck right in.
I was browsing the shops yesterday when I came across the Subway Sketchbook (YouTube Video: Subway Sketchbook). With Graffiti playing such a large part of our artistic culture here, I suppose it was only natural the someone would start selling it.
Unfortunately in person I found the sketchbook rather uninspiring. The outlines, while accurate were dull and boring. The promotional video (link above) provides an enthusiastic and upbeat advertisement – but at the end of the day – why not just doodle in any sketchbook as this one doesn’t add any value to the experience.
